Ode To New Year

 Why are we blindly welcoming the arrival of new year,

Weren’t last few years our pained existence?


Does man have wisdom,

Or is he a natural phenomenon unguidable?


If man is susceptible to illusions

Then why not build a path with them?


Personal resolutions and planning

Are dousing of a grand fire.


Our fate was written in our evolution,

Search for happiness our greatest illusion.


New year is another year in a wrapper,

Don’t squander it in wisdom but live it in your veins.



Suffern, New York, January 4, 2022
